How So Energy prices have changed
Like most UK energy suppliers, So Energy's prices are subject to Ofgem's energy price cap, which sets the maximum rate suppliers can charge for their standard variable or default tariffs.
In February 2021, a new price cap rate of £1,138 was announced. In reaction to this, So Energy raised prices on its So Out of Contract tariff by 4%, effective from April 2021. This means customers on this plan will pay an average of £1,035 - more than £100 below the price cap level.
So Energy renewable tariffs
All of the electricity supplied by So Energy comes from 100% renewable sources, backed by Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) Certificates.
So Energy lets customers decide where their renewable energy is sourced from. Each year, So Energy customers can vote on whether they would like their energy sourced from wind, solar, hydroelectric, biomass or tidal sources. The supplier then makes agreements to source their energy according to each share of the votes, so customers know exactly where their green electricity is coming from.
